Last Tuesday I announced that I would announce the publication date of Tweet Right - The Sensible Person's Guide to Twitter very soon. (I couldn't say when, because I didn't know when it would actually be up there on Amazon.) When I realised that it was up there, looking good, it became the worst secret in the world over the weekend, when people discovered that it was available. I asked them how and it turned out that already if you went on Amazon and search for books to help with Twitter, Tweet Right was coming up. It was No 22 in general non-fiction books, and that was before I'd told anyone it was there!
Anyway, I reckon that at £2.74 (on Kindle) it's a bargain for people who want to know how to navigate Twitter and retain their sanity. The price for other devices will vary a little depending on where you buy it. (It will be available soon in ibookstore and elsewhere, for all devices. Currently Kindle only.)
I have three things for you to celebrate publication and to thank you for your patience.
Enter as many times as you like, as long as your entry is different each time (and different by more than a word or two). I say this only because you'll bore the pants off us if you keep repeating the same point.
Valid entries will be put through Random Generator, to find winners.
And? And here's what to do. If you are already on Twitter and know your way around, add your name to a comment below, saying you'd like to BE a TwitterAngel. If you would like to use a TwitterAngel, add a comment saying you'd like to HAVE a TwitterAngel. Then, match up with each other! It's up to you. When possible, Angels should try to use the #TwitterAngels hashtag on Twitter, just so that more people hear about it. Later on, if people want an explanation of #TwitterAngels after this post has drifted off the page, you'll see it on the Tweet Right page at the top of the blog. There's no time limit to this scheme.
You are all invited! Next Tuesday, Aug 23rd, on Twitter, 6.30pm (UK time) till late. By that time, you will have read Tweet Right - :)) - so you'll know how to use hashtags and how to create the #TweetRightParty column so you can have fun with everyone else even if you don't already follow them. (The party will be a great way to find new people to follow and follow you.) Lots of my Twitter friends will be there to help you. And I'll announce the #TweetrightComp winners.
And, if you don't know what to do, ask your TwitterAngel :)
Do please buy the book. And if you know anyone thinking about joining Twitter or who has tried but not got into it, or who wonders why anyone should bother, do send them towards the book. It has already had a terrific response, with even seasoned Tweeters saying they've learnt things.
Tweet right - there's no other way.
